Sure, that seems like a good deal, at 20% profit, but you're forgetting the tax!  Nice try!

Used RPG section of a FLGS - just sitting in the bins with other stuff.


For those with long memories, this is a different store than the one where I stumbled upon the POTVQ 5th for about the same price.  But it does mean there are at least two stores near me that have no one on staff with knowledge of gaming material.

Havent had much in the way of "fun finds" recently but I got this in the mail today:

I've already got a TSR Woodgrain Tractics but I've been looking for an affordable Guidon version for awhile.  The fun part about this is it came with a copy of Fast Rules which has been difficult to find.  And it also has a 1972 catalog from Simulations Publications and advertisements from Guidon Games.  The price doesnt hurt either.  :D

Got my copy of Gaxmoor in the mail today and read it cover-to-cover while my son was at football practice.

I was a little disappointed.  
I thought it was written for C&C, but it's actually a 3.5E setting written by the Gygaxes (Gygaxi?) for TLG.

Still, it was worth $9.
And it's in pristine shape.

Keith---

There was some info posted about how to use Gaxmoor in Greyhawk---it's original inspiration, basically; I can try to dig it up if you're interested?

What was disappointing about Lost City of Gaxmoor?  The system?  The lack of connection to Greyhawk?
